Kurzbeschreibung

TV reporter Candy Sloan has eyes the color of cornflowers and legs that stretch all the way to heaven. She also has somebody threatening to rearrange her lovely face if she keeps on snooping into charges of Hollywood racketeering.

Spenser's job is to keep Candy healthy until she breaks the biggest story of her career. But her star witness has just bowed out with three bullets in his chest, two tough guys have doubled up to test Spenser's skill with his fists, and Candy is about to use her own sweet body as live bait in a deadly romantic game--a game that may cost Spenser his life.


From the Paperback edition.

Spenser travelling as a bodyguard to tinseltown. That must be fun for the reader, or not ? Well, in the first place it's a typical Spenser novel and his client seems to be a typical inhabitant of Hollywood. It takes some time until they get used to each other and both understand from each other their values of life. And while also the crime story develops and Spensers client understands what is really important in life, Spenser tries to protect her from the mob. And he fails to do so. This is something he can not stand and when you ever wanted to experience how it would be like if Spenser really gets angry, read this.

Format: Taschenbuch
This could have been a good story. Instead, it was a conglomeration of events and choices that made no sense and was horribly mired by Spenser's plummet from hero status. The image of Spenser dancing, slow and tight, with his client was disturbing enough. (This story comes after his commitment to Susan Silverman. A _slow_ dance with another woman on the balcony of her hotel room should be against Spenser's honorable "system" for living.) But it doesn't end there. He strips her and himself, carries her to bed, and spends the night. The next morning he explains that, since he doesn't have a relationship with this woman, having sex with her was alright and wouldn't bother Susan _much_. Bothering Susan _at all_ by sleeping with another woman should be against his system. He later reveals his stunning logic that sleeping with this woman a second time _would_ be cheating on Susan. Spenser's shining armor is bashed to bits in this story.
Also, the client (her name is "Candy" for heaven's sake) is an investigative reporter for a television station who is trying to prove that she is more than a pretty face and a swaying backside: she is good at her job. How does she go about proving this? By sleeping with men for information! She enhances this image of intelligence by zombe-like chanting of "I want it all, I want it all." As a result, instead of going to the police with information regarding very dangerous people, she meets dire consequences. Quite an intelligent lady.
Spenser dreams of Susan on his flight home to Boston. How wonderful of him.
This is the eighth entry in the Spenser series and is very disappointing. The 10th, 11th and 12th stories (_The Widening Gyre_, _Valediction_, and _A Catskill Eagle_) help restore some of Spenser's honor.

i disagree with the above reviews in that i believe that this was a very important book in the spencer series. i believe the entire premise behind the spencer character is not that different from the characters in "the bodyguard", "the last boyscout", "die hard", and "ronin" - they are all derivations of a solo samurai theme the characters travel through life alone with not much more than their convictions. how life tests these principles and how these characters choose and ultimately end up is the basic heart of the stories. spencer has proved himself in his comfortable settings in boston. a ronin (or samurai without a master) constantly wanders around searching...(for direction or a new master). see how spencer arrives with just a bag at the airport. this shows his lack of a settled lifestyle and such. this la trip was important in that it tests his relationship with friends he has left at home and people he has known there. the constant way in which he interacts with other ex-boxers and ex-strongmen displays a system of honor (or samurai, whatever) which is generally hard to grasp unless you see or read a lot of these stories. i admit that these stories are more male gender inclined but to see it in just that perspective, you lose what mr. parker is trying to convey about spencer and his world.

This book is set mainly in California. Spenser is strongest when he stays in the Boston area, but this book is very good and should be read by all Spenser fans.

HASH(0x917468ac) von 5 Sternen A Savage awakening 9. Juni 2007
Von K. Sozaeva - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
To this point, Spenser's adventures have been (relatively) light-hearted - some kidnappings, shake-downs, things of that nature. However, when he travels to Tinseltown to work as a bodyguard for Candy Sloan, an up-and-coming young investigative reporter on the trail of corruption in a movie studio who has been threatened, things turn very serious, very fast. The very first night he is in town, after Candy drops him off at his hotel - assuring him she will be fine on her own this first night - she gets grabbed off the street and beat up. Not too much later, a man she has been seeing is murdered. I don't want to get into more than this, as I do not want to ruin the story for those who have not read it - but this is not a story with a shiny-happy feel to it - this is detective noir at its grittiest. Beautifully envisioned, wonderfully written - filled with Spenser wise-cracks - but dark and gritty nonetheless.

I loved it. This is life. Thank you, Robert Parker, for giving us this day our Spenser.

HASH(0x91746cb4) von 5 Sternen Solid Spenser with One of the Best Endings in the Series 16. September 2007
Von Thriller Lover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
A SAVAGE PLACE is the eighth Spenser novel, and it's a very solid entry.

In this book, Spenser is hired to act as a bodyguard for Candy Sloan, a Los Angeles television newscaster who is on the verge of breaking a story involving the mob. Needless to say, Sloan's life is in constant danger, and Spenser has his hands full in trying to protect her while she aggressively pursues the story that could make her career.

A SAVAGE PLACE is rather unique for a Spenser book. The novel takes place in LA instead of Boston, which means that Spenser is completely on his own. Hawk and Susan Silverman do not make appearances, and Spenser has no connections with the local police force. This makes for fresher, more exciting story overall, since Spenser acts much more like a lone wolf.

I also found the ending of A SAVAGE PLACE to be surprising and terrifically dark. The final "showdown" in the book is absolutely gripping, and it's one of my favorite moments in any Spenser book.

The only slight downside of this book is the character of Candy Sloan. She is not a particularly admirable character, and speaks more like a psychologist than a reporter in many scenes. As another reviewer pointed out, she's kind of a watered-down version of Rachel Wallace, a character from a previous Spenser novel. Unfortunately, I didn't find her particularly likable or believable for the most part.

Overall, though, this is a solid entry in the series and I highly recommend it.

HASH(0x91746cc0) von 5 Sternen One of my favorites in the series... 26. Mai 2003
Von Colleen Barry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Are you tired of the typical formula novel or tv series? Parker isn't afraid to give Spenser, and his readers, a kick in the gut with this plot twist. As Spenser visits L.A. (a savage place) and experiences its cold indifference, he finds his own savage side. Spenser is such a poised but quick P.I. We see his (rarely shown) visceral reaction to brutality. Candy Sloan, his reporter/client, is a woman making her path (any way that she can) in a man's world.
